Hashtag Comedy teaches improv to high school students at Southwest Area Conference of the Ohio Thespians 01242015

Hashtag Comedy Southwestern Regional Conference Ohio Thespians

The ladies of Hashtag Comedy (Sarah, Sara and Darla [not pictured]) journeyed down to Troy, Ohio, on Saturday for the Southwest Area Conference of the Ohio Thespians. This year's conference theme was #Throwback Thespian Thespians through the Decades. For Sara Bucher, this was a homecoming of sorts - to go back to Troy High School, this time to lead a workshop for current high school students!

We developed an hour-long session of improv fundamentals for actors, to explore some of the basic rules and tools of improv, and discuss how they can be used by comedic and dramatic actors. All in all, we had about 45 high school students in two sessions, and two teachers. The students were enthused, energetic and full of emotion! We greatly enjoyed this experience, and hope to do more of it! Go Trojans!
